Spring Car Cleaning Tips

Car Cleaning TipsOver the winter, not only does clutter build up in cars, but so does garbage and grime. In Minnesota, it is too cold to stand around working a sucker out of the carpet, so it gets left. Most of us would rather run into a warm building than pick up spilled cereal or sweep out road salt and sand tracked in by a barrage of boots and shoes.

Come spring, many of us have vehicles that look like a battle of sorts took place on the seats, floors, floor mats, cup holders, etc. As soon as the first warm and sunny day presents itself people come out in droves to clean out their vehicles, wash them and do much needed minor repairs. You can even listen for the hum of shop vacs through out the neighborhood being inundated by flying candy wrappers, pebbles, and dropped french fries.

If your vehicle has you itching to give it a good cleaning, here are some car cleaning tips to make it easier.

  1. Bring a garbage can with you and move it around to each of the doors so you aren’t wasting time carrying it off.
  2. Find an empty container like a box, bucket or laundry basket to throw items in that don’t belong in the vehicle like clothing, winter gear, toys, books, extra pens, etc.
  3. If something needs to soak (sticky dried pop in a cup holder is a classic), start that right away. Check your cup holders, floor mats, and other crevasses that need to soak with a warm soapy rag for a while.
  4. For those with really dirty vehicles, it’s about clearing away the chunks, in order to clean better. A shop vac or vacuum attachment will be handy. Make sure to use an extension cord so you can reach everywhere that is needed and open all the doors for easiest access.
  5. Lemon juice and vinegar are great odor eaters, and often a small bowl or moist rag with either of these liquids placed in a safe area (lemon can remove color) can remove tough odors.
  6. Old toothbrushes or washed mascara brushes work great to dust and reach small areas like vents, button panels, door handles, etc.
